While playing Baobab Ball, Bunga falls into a heap with Ushari

When Bunga and Kion are playing Baobab Ball, they run into Ushari, who falls into a heap with Bunga. The baobab fruit ends up in Ushari's mouth, but Bunga quickly grabs it away, and Ushari is forced to duck as Kion leaps over him after his friend.

"Never Judge a Hyena by its Spots"

Going somewhere, Bunga?
—Ushari intimidates Bunga

In the middle of Bunga's attempts to lead the Lion Guard to Flat Ridge Rock, he runs into Ushari, who speaks threateningly to him. Thoroughly intimidated, Bunga chooses a different path.

Ushari hunts a hyrax

Say! That was my lunch!
—Ushari protests Bunga preventing his hunt

After the Lion Guard rescues a hyrax from a thorn bush, Ushari sneaks up behind it and eats it whole. An indignant Bunga rushes forward and forces the hyrax out of Ushari's mouth, which prompts Ushari to protest that the hyrax had been his lunch. Bunga simply rolls Ushari into a ball and tosses him into a tree, where he lies in a defeated heap, hissing Bunga's name in annoyance.

"Bunga the Wise"

After a severe flood hits the Pride Lands, Kion and the rest of the Lion Guard look down Ushari's hole, ready to make sure that he and the other cobras aren't stuck in the mud. When Beshte refuses to climb down the hole, Kion looks to Fuli, who groans over Bunga's absence. Before she can climb down to check on Ushari, Ono flies up and tells the Lion Guard to follow him to Hakuna Matata Falls.

"The Kupatana Celebration"

Ushari appears briefly next to Timon and Pumbaa during the Kupatana celebration.

"Fuli's New Family"


Beshte asks Ushari why he bit Bunga

He landed on my head, Beshte.
—Ushari justifies his attack on Bunga

When Bunga is accidentally heaved into a bush, he lands on Ushari's head. Out of pure reflex, Ushari bites him, and Ono worries that the bite is venomous. Beshte asks Ushari why he would do such a thing, and Ushari spits back that Bunga had landed on his head and that he is lucky to have only been bitten once.

"Paintings and Predictions"

Aah! Bunga!
—Ushari after Bunga tackles him

When Bunga mistakes Ushari for a tree branch, he tackles the snake to the ground. Ushari in turn wraps Bunga tightly in coils and tells him that he would like to bite him, but the last time he had, he had been unable to rid himself of the taste for days.

"The Lost Gorillas"

When two gorillas named Hafifu and Majinuni enter the Pride Lands, they wreak havoc on several of the Pride Landers. Hafifu mistakes Ushari for a stick and heaves him at a baobab fruit. Ushari eventually falls to the ground, where he laments always getting into trouble when he comes around the Lion Guard.

Physical appearance

Ushari bears maroon scales and a tan snout and underside. Along the upper side of his body are thin purple stripes, with two spheres of purple on either side of his neck. In some appearances, he has a spectacle marking on the back of his hood, but this is a design mistake, as only Indian cobras have this feature. His eyes are black.

Personality and traits

I should bite you, Bunga, but the last time I did, I couldn't get the taste out of my mouth for days.
—Ushari to Bunga

When left to his own devices, Ushari is calm and quiet, with an inclination to keep to himself. However, when provoked, he is known to respond aggressively, especially toward Bunga, whom he harbors a strong distaste for. He also doesn't like it when other animals trample over him.
